DESCRIPTION: Farmed Atlantic salmon, the kind of salmon most commonly found in restaurants and supermarkets, may be the single largest source of toxic dietary pollutants.
If you missed the first two videos in this three part series, I reviewed the existing links between seafood and diabetes risk in Fish and Diabetes (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/fish-and-diabetes) and explored this concept of our own body fat as a reservoir for disease-causing pollutants in Diabetes and Dioxins (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/diabetes-and-dioxins).
More on hexachlorobenzene in my video Food Sources of Perfluorochemicals (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/food-sources-of-perfluorochemicals/).
Our body has a tougher time getting rid of some toxins than others:
• How Fast Can Children Detoxify from PCBs? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-fast-can-children-detoxify-from-pcbs)
• How Long to Detox From Fish Before Pregnancy? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-long-to-detox-from-fish-before-pregnancy/)
• The Wrong Way to Detox (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-wrong-way-to-detox/)
The best way to detox is to stop toxing in the first place.
